The first systematic development of the principles and technology underlying the disguising of text and computer data. Formulates the principles underlying encipherment, analyzes a number of basic systems including the ``Enigma machine,'' and treats applications to data processing: public key systems, electronic signatures, communication and file security.From the Inside Flap:
Here is the one book that gives you the tools for keeping sensitive computer data confidential. The phenomenal expansion of data processing in almost every business sector has brought with it the risk that sensitive or valuable information might be seen or tampered with by unauthorized personnel. But hiding the text by encipherment—an age-old practice—reduces the risk. Formerly the province of governments, cryptographic systems are now available to you in this first systematic treatment of the subject. Part I develops the principles underlying encipherment through an examination of a number of classical systems. Included is an analysis of the Enigma machine—the basic cryptographic system of the German military in World War II and the data encryption standard DES. Part II shows how encipherment can be applied to your individual data processing requirements. It discusses communications and file security, public key systems and electronic signatures. The book gives practice in deciphering text with problems interspersed throughout and solutions at the end. Cryptography: A Primer shows you how to protect your data. The first accessible step-by-step guide to both theory and applications, it also serves as a text for students in computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics.
